WESTWOOD, Mass., March 28, 2022/PRNewswire• Since the pandemic’s beginning, the number of women who are more than males have quit work. Could this be because the majority of people are not feeling satisfied? Mia Hewett is a Life and Business Coach and best-selling author. She is the author of her Aligned Intelligence(r) coaching approach is designed for people who want to achieve more fulfillment in their lives. As per the U.S. Census Bureau, there’s been a 71.1 percent rise in applications for business in just one year, from 2021 to 2022.
The recent survey by Mia revealed an astounding 63.7 percent of respondents stated they want to become entrepreneurs or step up in their careers. Mia believes this is an interest in greater satisfaction. This is what Oprah’s life coach Martha Beck, says, “Now people’s questions are coming from a much deeper place. Before, it was ‘How do I change my life?’ Now it’s ‘What do I want from my life?'”
An Emerging Mental Health Crisis
The pandemic is sure to have had a significant impact. An astounding increase of 28 percent in depressive disorders and 26 percent in anxiety disorders were recorded in the initial year.
Mia was looking to discover how mental health was affected since the outbreak. From 103 responses, 79.2 percent of respondents stated they needed emotional support or aid in dealing with anxiety. Women are also more susceptible to mental health issues. A poll conducted by the non-profit Kaiser Family Foundation (KFF) revealed that 57% of women felt their mental health was declining due to the impacts of the pandemic on their lives.
Mia is adamant that women as more resilient than they get to be. She states, “Women join my coaching programs with a clear direction they know what they want and are looking for support on how to achieve it. What I find is that mental health is often ignored until it starts to impact business growth.”
Women Seek New Opportunities on Social Media
The number of users on social media increased significantly in the amount of time U.S users engaged on social media in the year 2020. LinkedIn analysts have recorded nearly two times the number of female entrepreneurs using it since the outbreak in the data they created for The Washington Post. Mia is convinced that social media has helped women start businesses that they wouldn’t have thought of before the pandemic.
Mia believes that women’s desire to connect may be another reason for the rise in business applications. She stated, “It’s not surprising that during the pandemic there has been a rise in social media use. Social media has become a source of inspiration for many people. In fact, in my survey, 87.7% of respondents in my survey said they found my book, Meant For More, through social media.”
The COVID-19 pandemic appears to have led to the perception of women, more so than males. Mia is a coach for women in various sectors and has also expanded her coaching business using Facebook and Instagram. Mia says, “The journey of entrepreneurship is the ultimate journey of self. Women are more open to enhancing their sense of self and want to make an impact and difference.”
Another study conducted by Gusto discovered that nearly 40percent of females had started an enterprise since the outbreak. The data suggest a connection between female entrepreneurs looking for satisfaction and the increasing coaching business. Another explanation is that the changing perceptions have made women seek happiness and not only success in business.
